Christmas in July...already?

If you are following the Quietfire blog this week you have probably seen all the new
stamps that were just released.  And wow are they ever gorgeous! And... Since they are 
starting to put out things in the craft stores i thought i would use a few things that i
found and create an ornament and card with one of the new Christmas stamps.

For my card and ornament i use the gorgeous new "May your Longest List" stamp.  For both of them i stamped with Golden Glitz Delicata ink and embossed with gold so that the sentiment would really stand out. For the card i stamped on vellum and the ornament i used ivory cardstock.  And i also used a few dies on the card and ornament to give it a little more glitz and make it fancier.

The ornament I bought is paper with a glass insert so i painted it first with a couple of coats of
Americana Gloss Enamel and let it dry.  And then i brushed on Decou-page over the top and
added lots of red glitter and let that dry too.  It's messy but i like it.  And then i stamped the
image on the ivory card stock and then used the glass to trace the circle and cut it out by hand.
And since my little candy cane wouldn't fit inside i put it all together and glued it on the front.

And for my card i used solid gold and dotted papers from Micheal's.  The dies are
from Spellbinders and i used tiny clear rhinestones around the outside to make it 
sparkle with the sentiment.  And to finish a pretty red bow to really set it off.  And i 
tried a new adhesive to glue the vellum and it worked really good.  It's from Beacon
and is called 3 in 1 and it's pretty amazing for alot of hard to glue things.  

Guess it's always good to start your card ideas early... there are
some really cute ones so check back again for more fun ideas :)
